With the new EU Interchange Rules now very firmly in place, the 2nd Co-Brand EMEA, held in London in February 2017, posed the question "Are you bold enough?" Are you bold enough to get new customers with new propositions in a world where the brands are Apple or Android Pay and not those of "traditional" co-brand companies? Ae you forward thinking enough to capture market sectors, like corporate cards? This event brought together key industry players from retail, travel, airline, hotel and the financial services industries to debate and discuss actionable strategies and insights the deliver for customers and shareholders.
